About Feadship

Feadship
Netherlands
+31 23 524 7000
Feadship is a joint venture originally comprised of 7 shipyards that was officially created in 1951 as an export association to promote them to American clients. Feadship in fact stands for First Export Association of Dutch Shipyards.

Launched at the New York Boat Show of 1951, the company was promoting aluminum yachts which were then a novelty. The yachts were met with interest from the American market and new orders started coming in, revitalizing an industry that was struggling following World War II.

Celebrities of the era started ordering Feadships, amongst which was Malcolm Forbes who commissioned the Highlander from the shipyard.

By 1968, 3 entities were left within Feadship (Royal Van Lent, De Voogt and De Vries Lentsch), the others having left the organization during a new period of the growth for the industry.

As the industry developed as a whole, Feadship continued building yachts, becoming one of the most prestigious shipyards.

CRN launch 74m Cloud 9
CRN Yachts, part of the Ferretti Group, have confirmed the launch of Cloud 9. The 74-meter Cloud 9 becomes the shipyard's second largest yacht to date, outranked only by the 80-meter Chopi Chopi.With an exterior by Zuccon and an interior by Winch Design, Cloud 9 is able to accommodate up to 16 guests (12 when chartering) in a master suite, a VIP suite and 6 guest cabins catered to by a crew of 22.Focused on a free interior-exterior flow, Cloud 9 boasts over 1,000 square meters of liveable space. Amongst the yacht's key amenities are a private deck, complete with an intimate lounging area, forward of the master cabin, an extensive beach club with an extended platform From a technical standpoint, the yacht is featured by twin Caterpillar 3516C engines of 2,680 hp each, giving Cloud 9 a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.The owner's previous Cloud 9 was a 60-meter CMN built in 2009 and sold in June 2015 at an asking price of €34,900,000. She has since been renamed to Ice Angel, a name previously held by a 50-meter Heesen, which is currently on the market asking €24,500,000.
How much does a superyacht actually cost?
Yachts are hardly a mass market product and yet the superyacht market has carved out a niche in being even more exclusive, but how much does a yacht cost to build, buy or rent? Let's take a look at the current state of the market.Since the 1980s the amount of superyachts, ie yachts over 24 meters, has grown 600% with the worldwide fleet now counting over 10,000 vessels compared to around 1,500 in 1979. Deliveries of large sailing yachts have however remained constant throughout the decades with around 45 S/Y built per year since the 70s.This exponential growth was brought mainly by the construction of motor yachts. Indeed, the ratio of M/Y to S/Y built has exploded from 2 in the 1980s to a whooping 7 motor yachts delivered for each sailing yacht under construction today. As a result sailing yachts have often retained value better than their counterparts.The expansion of the worldwide fleet of superyachts has also had another significant effect, the accelerated depreciation of yachts on the brokerage market. A 43-meter Benetti Vision 145 could for example be built at a cost of €21,9 million in 2014 whereas a 10-year old model in mint condition such as M/Y Dia's could be bought for just €8 million on the brokerage market.This large difference in price is however not unique to this case and can be found across almost all yacht manufacturers. Heesen, a well-known Dutch shipyard, is currently selling its 47-meter Project Ruya for €29,9 million. Its 2012 sistership, Lady Petra is however up for sale at the same time asking €22,500,000, down from her initial asking price of €31 million when it was first listed for sale in 2014.On top of the initial purchase price must however also be added the yearly maintenance fees amounting to roughly 10% of the initial price of a new build. For a 55-meter yacht for example, this would represent close to $3 million per year.Crew salaries today represent the largest of those expenses with the starting salary of a deckhand onboard a 50-meter yacht orbiting around $40,000 per year and going over $200,000/year for captains on larger yachts. The balance sheet is further burdened with fuel costs, repairs and operating costs such as uniforms and food for the crew.To offset the operating costs, some owners turn to renting out their yachts to guests, which has created a market with near 1,400 yachts for charter throughout the world. Before the subprime crisis, these could represent a genuine business opportunity with some UHNWIs even building superyachts with solely charter in mind.Few yachts are however able to fully recoup their maintenance costs in today's market. The 72-meter Axioma for example, one of the most popular charter yachts on the market, generated over €7 million in revenue from charters in its first year alone. Yet, its current asking price of €68 million suggest these have barely outperformed operational costs.Many have therefore claimed that chartering a yacht has become the only financially justifiable option. It can indeed be argued that a like-new, 50-meter yacht could be chartered for near €250,000 per week during the summer season. To those would be added around 25% in fees of advanced provisioning, which would cover food, fuel, berthing fees and other expenses whilst charter guests are on board.Annual operating costs of such a yacht would be near €2 million per year, which equates to nearly 6 and a half weeks of charter. It would therefore seem one would need to spend at least two months onboard to justify the operating costs, let alone the full purchase price. Yet, every year, dozens of new build projects are started despite this financial reasoning.Prior to the 2008 crisis, an industry of yacht flippers had emerged with clients buying a slot for a superyacht at a prestigious shipyard and then reselling the yacht slightly before its launch. US businessman, Warren E. Halle had ordered 3 yachts from Lurssen in 2003, which he paid for €48 million a piece plus the cost of interior finishing. As following legal proceedings revealed, he later sold the first yacht (Project Marlin) for €65 million in 2006, the second one for €71,5 million in 2008 and kept the third one (Martha Ann) for himself, which is now on the market asking $79 million.This market has since evaporated with many shipyards that had committed to build on speculation, in order to retain ownership of their slots throughout the construction, facing difficult financial times. Italian shipyard Baglietto posted losses of €105 million in 2009 and was ultimately only saved by the Gavio Group, which brought it back to financial stability. Yet, despite this turmoil, at least 700 superyachts are currently under construction.The megayacht market is at the moment particularly strong with at least 6 projects over 100 meters currently in build at Lurssen alone and several other shipyards working on their largest yachts to date such as Benetti and Feadship. Historically this high demand for megayachts in the past decade has allowed their sales prices to remain higher than construction prices due to the gains in time a brokerage purchase offered.In 2011 for example, the late Russian oligarch, Boris Berezovsky managed to sell his Project Darius, under construction at Lurssen at the time, for €240 million to the Al Futtaim. He had however paid just €148,5 million, plus interior finishing costs, for the project as became known in a legal process that followed.A growing concern for superyacht builders has however become the increasing gap between the increasing number of individuals with a net worth of over €250 million and the stagnant number of new build projects. Some have speculated that a possible explanation for this shift is a disinterest with the new generation of younger UHNWIs to own yachts and an increasing preference to charter by picking from an ever-growing fleet.Dutch shipyard, Feadship has however delivered the 70-meter Joy, first yacht to boast an exterior design by Bannenberg & Rowell in modern history, to their youngest client yet. As a testament to her owner's young age, the superyacht features a basketball court on the bow and a gym surrounded by glass walls on the bridge deck.Despite all the financial reasoning that might nudge UHNWIs to charter rather than own, over 350 superyachts were sold in 2016 showing that the reasons behind owning a yacht might actually be dominated by the pleasure and freedom that owners get from their own superyacht.
Royal Huisman expands their shipyard facilities to Amsterdam
Royal Huisman is proud to announce their intention for the exclusive use of the facilities of Holland Jachtbouw (HJB) in Amsterdam following the anticipated termination of business by HJB after the passing away of founder Chris Gongriep.Together with Royal Huisman’s purpose built home base in Vollenhove on an area of over 30,000 sqm (consisting of 5 main shipbuilding halls) and the use of Emden Dockyard in Germany (surface of 300,000 sqm), the modern 12,000 sqm facility of HJB in Amsterdam incorporates 3 state-of-the-art halls with a maximum length of 60m, all overlooking 120m of waterfront with convenient access to open sea, all available for new-build, refit and commissioning.We regret to see a yard like HJB eventually cease to exist, but we do hope that with the intention of Royal Huisman to acquire the facilities we are able to keep the Netherlands firmly on the map for superyacht owners, keeping in mind our plans for diversification in the motor and sailing yacht sectorRoemer Boogaard, managing director of Royal HuismanIn November 2016 Royal Huisman's dedicated refit department, Huisfit, secured exclusive and exceptional deep water facilities at Emden Dockyard.
Work in progress on the first CCN K40 explorer Kanga
Italian shipyard Cerri Cantiere Navali has shared the construction update on its new K Series explorer yacht, 41 metre Kanga. Floating Life, who are managing the project, announced the sale of the yacht in 2015 and the build started in January 2016. Commissioned by the American owner, who plans to cruise around the world all the way up to the Poles, Kanga is being built to RINA standards. The yacht can sleep up to 12 guests in 5 staterooms, including an owner’s cabin, two double rooms and two twin rooms with Pullman berths, as well as a crew of 11. The tri-deck displacement yacht also has a 9.4m beam and features naval architecture by Vannini-Oleggini Naval Design. Designed by Studio Sculli, Kanga boasts wooden wall panelling with geometric shapes.Performance wise she will be fitted with a pair of 1,450hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesel engines, providing the yacht with a top speed of 16 knots. Thanks to her total fuel capacity of 65,000 litres, Kanga will have a maximum range of 5,400 nautical miles at 10 knots cruising speed.The yacht is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

The battle for the title of largest sailing yacht in the worldThe debate over what sailing yacht could claim the sough-after title of largest sailing yacht in the world has been a long and tedious one in yachting and with a few possible contenders in the running and more in build, it looks like the battle isn't over yet.Indeed, whereas it is clear that 180-meter Azzam is the longest yacht in the world and Dilbar is the most voluminous, both of these are motor yachts. With sailing yachts, the ranking is however much more opaque due largely to the measurement that is used.Loaded waterline length, known as LWL, is the measurement of the length of a vessel from the points where it sits in the water. On the other hand length overall, abbreviated as LOA, is defined as the maximum length of a yacht's hull, which for sailing yacht also includes the bowsprit, a key factor when measuring a sailing yacht and part of the difficulty in this ranking.6. 70m Rossinavi superyacht King Shark soldItalian shipyard Rossinavi has sold their 70-meter motor yacht project, King Shark.
